Watch the Boardwalk Empire intro recreated using Grand Theft Auto 5

Gets the detail down to every Nucky cranny.

YouTuber 8-Bit Bastard has recreated the intro to HBO's prohibition era gangster epic Boardwalk Empire in Grand Theft Auto 5.

Watch as digital Steve Buscemi's Nucky Thompson looms ominously over the Atlantic City coast while copious bottles of hooch wash ashore.

It's not quite the same, as the closest digital approximation GTA5 can make to Steve Buscemi's distinctive face ends up looking more like his co-star Michael Pitt, but it still matches the tone, if not the specifics.

If you'd like a side-by-side comparison video, look no further.

Previously, 8-Bit Bastard made a GTA5 video that recreated the into from The Sopranos, which you can check out here.
